I know that nf2 scheinwelt at is working on something like that for
fuse. Its independent from gvfs, and I haven't looked at it in detail.
Yes - it's called "libfusi". It's the "fuse only" approach for network
mounts, thought as a short term cross desktop solution. IMHO gvfs
requires gio to become the standard file-management API for the majority
of applications, also for KDE. This would be cool, but might take a while.
However, the way libfusi manages network mounts, might be a pattern for
gvfs: It specifies schemes of required/optional and standard/advanced
mountpoint properties and remembers them in a kind of "virtual fstab".
For passwords, well, when executing a mount you pass in a
GMountOperation object where you get callbacks when things like
passwords or answers to other questions are required. This can use
gnome-keyring, and I think we should have some standardized code in Gtk+
that you can use for this.
Does that mean Gtk+ will to depend on gnome-keyring? Or will it just be
a Gtk+ plugin?
